Car Spotlight: Chevelle Drag Car

As I mentioned in part 1 of the Shaheen car show pictures, I don't often see many Chevelles of this generation. This one is special, though.

.

This car is set up for drag racing. I'm guessing it's not the best car on the road. Those narrow front wheels are great for keeping weight and drag down at the strip, but not that great at handing corners.

.

The engine, obviously not the original, has been heavily modified. Notice the electric water pump and the plate aluminum engine mounting plate.

.

The rear end looks largely untouched. Notice the wide rear tires and the battery cutoff..

.

The interior really lets you know that this is no mere road car. This is something like what you would see on "Street Outlaws".

.

The seats are meant for holding the driver and possible passenger in place as securely as possible, rather than for comfort.

.

This car has such a nice side-profile.

Thanks for reading. Like usual, like and share this post, follow me here on Blogger via the link up to the left, and check out my social media sites via the links on the upper right.
